With so many of the new tablets coming out from the big manufacturers being designed with gaming as a priority, it is getting tougher to pick individual ones as outstanding.

Obviously this is not really an issue for those who use Apple tablets, but there are lots of great Android gaming tablets released these days – with 2013 having been no exception.

Galaxy Tab 3 scoops the jackpot

However it is possible to identify some that offer something a bit special, whether you are playing casino games like slot ones, adventure or role playing games (RPGs), with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 being one that scoops the jackpot.

This is an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS phone at the small, light end of the tablet market – being just 8 inches in size and 300 grams in weight. While this may seem like a bad thing, the size and weight are actually genuine bonuses when you are gaming for lengthy stretches – which the likes of some RPGs and the casino games like poker at www.jackpotcity.co.uk require.

Furthermore the Galaxy Tab 3 maximises the available space, with 7 inches being devoted to the screen display, so it is big enough to be able to render the detailed visual information of modern games effectively. In terms of image quality, the 1280 x 800-resolution and16 M depth of colour ensure that the image quality is crystal clear throughout.

However there is also the power and battery life aspects, as a really good gaming tablet has to deliver in both of these areas, and the Galaxy Tab 3 does. It has the Exynos 4212 dual-core 1.5 GHz processor that has been earning fine reviews from gamers for its speed – while the 4.000-mAh battery provides up to 11 hours of use. This should make it more than capable of handling those longer games like the RPGs and poker, as well as the quick, fun games like slots that people use to pass spare minutes in the day.

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

– After falling significantly in 2020, oil prices have returned to pre-pandemic levels
– The rise has been driven by OPEC+ production cuts and an improving economic climate
– Higher prices are likely to support a rebound in oil-producing emerging markets
– Further virus outbreaks or increased production would pose challenges to price stability

A combination of continued production cuts and an increase in economic activity has prompted oil prices to return to pre-pandemic levels – a factor that will be crucial to the recovery of major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Brent crude prices rose above $60 a barrel in early February, the first time they had exceeded pre-Covid-19 values. They have since continued to rise, going above $66 a barrel on February 24.

The ongoing increase in oil prices, which have soared by 75% since November and around 26% since the beginning of the year, marks a dramatic change from last year.

Following the closure of many national borders and the implementation of travel-related restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, demand for oil slumped globally.

In the wake of the Saudi-Russia price war in early 2020, Brent crude prices fell from around $60 a barrel in February that year to two-decade lows of $20 a barrel in late April, as supply increased and demand plummeted. The value of WTI crude – the main benchmark for oil in the US – fell to record lows of around $40 a barrel last year on the back of a lack of storage space.

While global demand for oil remains low, one factor credited with reversing the trend is the decision to make significant cuts to oil production, which subsequently tightened global supplies.
